About LUV

Linux Users of Victoria is one of Australia's largest GNU/Linux, free software and open source user groups. We conduct two regular events in Melbourne each month. On the first Tuesday of the month LUV runs technical lectures at the Kathleen Syme Library, 251 Faraday Street Carlton and at Infoxchange in Richmond on the third Saturday of the month, LUV run a hands on workshop, addressing the issues of the users who turn up. The workshops have a "beginners" level talk, whereas the technical lectures are for an "intermediate" and "advanced" audience.

LUV has four regional chapters in Ballarat, Geelong, Shepparton, and the La Trobe Valley. Many of our members also attend Melbourne Linux Users Group (MLUG).

We believe that software patents cause net harm to our members, the software industry and the community. We therefore support removing software from patentable subject matter.

LUV Meet & Greet and General Discussion

This is a casual gathering of LUVers to meet and greet and have a general discussion!

There is no talks scheduled but there might be lightning talks. So, if you have a topic of interest you like to share with others or have a challenge that you want to get experts' opinions on, this would be a great opportunity.

If you have never used Linux or have never been to a LUV meeting, you are more than welcome to join us! We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
